Growing caladiums in a pot is relatively simple. Give them moist, but not saturated soil, and make sure the potting mix drains well, while holding some vital moisture so it never dries out completely.

For a single caladium plant, you’ll need a pot that’s at least 20 cm in diameter, and the same depth. Fill the pot with a draining, but slightly moisture-retentive compost mix (I recommend 60% organic compost and 40% vermiculite). 

  • Leave enough space for the existing root ball of your calcium, and gently place it in the pot, before gently filling compost around the edge.
  • After filling the container, water it really well so water is dripping out of the base of the pot. This will settle the roots into their new home, and let you focus on positioning, rather than watering for the first couple of weeks.
  • Find a well-lit spot, ideally with 6-8 hours of indirect light per day. 
  • Water indoor caladiums once every two weeks, or whenever the soil surface is starting to dry out.

Through wet seasons, Caladiums will naturally go dormant and lose all foliage, but in Australia, that dormancy can be triggered by both drought and cold temperatures depending on where you are.

Please note: 

You will receive the same or similar plant as shown in the picture and colours of plants can change according to the season or time of day. Size's can also vary after drying + packing so may appear a little different than from the photo shown.
